Do you need to close a road? If you are organising an event, moving cattle or doing works and need to temporarily close off a road you will need to get permission from Council. Simply complete a Temporary Road Closure Form and return it to us 10 working days prior to the event with the other information required. We will contact you to let you know if the permit is approved. We advertise any planned road closures in the local newspapers.

Permission is required by individuals, contractors and companies wanting to dig up any section of Shire road or footpath. This enables the correct mechanisms to be put in place for public liability and ensures that the 'dug up' area is appropriately replaced.

A vehicle crossing is the link between your drive and the road, within the road reserve and is the responsibility of the property owner. If you want to put in a new vehicle crossing or change the existing crossing, you need to apply for a permit from Council. Crossings need to be built to Council standards and require inspection once an application for a permit has been submitted. For urban crossings Council needs to inspect the crossing once it has been boxed, but before any concrete is poured.
